EFL Day of Action 2019

AS part of the EFL Day of Action, Argyle first-team stars Ruben Lameiras and Yann Songo’o spent time at Goosewell Academy in Plymouth.

Ruben and Yann joined in a Move and Learn day with children aged 9-10, offering advice and answering questions on their professional careers in football.

Funded through the EFL and from Ferrero, Argyle Community Trust offers six weeks blocks of health and nutrition lessons to children in year 5 for free. Over the past 12 months, 1,865 children have engaged in the programme and children have been able to learn about the Eatwell guide and how exercise impacts our bodies. The programme highlights the use of our vital organs and how what we eat, and drink can affect these.

The session was split into two parts, a 45-minute Healthy Eating workshop (classroom based) and 45-minute practical sessions that linked back to the theory-based session.
